Food Pairings: Siena Tavern + Kenzo

Like I mentioned last month, I’m bringing back one of my favorite categories here on CCF — Food Pairings. It gives me the opportunity to talk about my two favorite things in the world — food and fashion — so I say, why not?

On Sunday, I had a lovely brunch at Siena Tavern and it reminded me of something very familiar…

Chi City’s Most Stylish: Aaron Comes

Earlier this year I shared with you in my first Chi City’s Most Stylish post that I never make New Years resolutions because I know I won’t keep them. BUT I did for the first time in 2013 and actually kept it — that’s why I’ve featured 12 of the best dressed people in Chicago over this past year.

As we say SEE YA to 2013, I’ll leave you with the very last (unless I change my mind for 2013) Chi City’s Most Stylish.

Chi City’s Most Stylish: Anna Jane Wisniewski

It’s October 31 so I’m sure you’re all expecting a Halloween-themed post (I already gave you one of those¬†though…and aren’t you sick of it yet?) but I have something even better.

IT’S OCTOBER’S CHI CITY’S MOST STYLISH!

Why You Should Be Happy It’s Fall

I originally wanted to call this post “The best part about it being 40 degrees in October” but that seemed a little lengthy (and to you lucky ones out there, it’s not 40 degrees in all parts of the world). But for my fellow Chicagoans, although this weather is a bit surprising (even for us), it’s a little depressing to know that Winter snow, below freezing temperatures and the oh-so-popular puffer coats will all be gracing us with their presence very soon. Because I’m all about spinning a negative into a positive (unless you happen to get caught in the rain in your new suede and calf hair boots…there’s no positive to that), today we’re going to talk about the 5 best things about it being 40 degrees in October (and if you wake up early enough, 35 degrees).

Chi City’s Most Stylish: Shannon Jamar Eaton

When you come across one of the best dressed guys in Chicago and he just so happens to live by the motto “chivalry is not dead,” you can’t help but be intrigued by this person, right?

Well I found that person and he has many names, is a jack of all trades but most importantly, he has killer style.
